IS VALENTINE’S DAY A HALLMARK HOLIDAY?

IS VALENTINE’S DAY A HALLMARK HOLIDAY?

Every single Valentine’s day (and the days leading up to it) you’ll have two types of people: you either celebrate or appreciate Valentine’s Day and think it’s a nice way to celebrate love, or you hate it and think it’s just a way for businesses […]

WHY WE SHOULD ALL BE KEEPING A DIARY

WHY WE SHOULD ALL BE KEEPING A DIARY

I think we should all be keeping a diary. I’ve spoken a lot about how I have a bullet journal and how it helps organise my life, but the diary I’m talking about isn’t for scheduling your week, but the ‘Dear Diary…’ type. The type […]

CAN YOU BE A RELATABLE INFLUENCER?

CAN YOU BE A RELATABLE INFLUENCER?

Let me start off this post by saying: I hate the term Influencer. Well, not exactly hate it, because I definitely have stumbled across Instagram feeds with hundreds of thousands of followers where every single post is an #ad – in those sorts of cases, Influencer […]

AM I A BASIC BLOGGER?

Scrolling aimlessly through Twitter one day (you can follow me if you like random retweets and nonsense) I noticed a few popular tweets talking about stereotypical bloggers. Use rose gold, marble, fake flowers and bits of gold jewellery in a flatlay? Be overly positive about […]

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

WHAT I’VE LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

It’s my 3rd wedding anniversary just around the corner (it’s February 27th, by the way), so I feel like I’ve been married long enough to be just about out of the honeymoon period, but not long enough that I want to throttle my husband for […]

MY PROMISCUITY IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

MY PROMISCUITY IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

In September 2016 I wrote about my experiences at university and why I dropped out. Unfortunately, I received this message from a fake facebook account soon after: This was pretty shocking to read as it’s been years since this sort of comment has been made directly […]

WHY YOU SHOULD BE TRACKING YOUR PERIOD

WHY YOU SHOULD BE TRACKING YOUR PERIOD

I believe that tracking your monthly visitor and all the symptoms in-between should be second nature to everybody who has a period. It’s so useful to know the ins and outs of your body. Here’s why, and how. 1. For Your GP or OBGYN Even if […]
